Exploration of tribological characteristics of naturally woven fiber composites

Abstract
Natural fiber composites (NFC) being one of the new interventions in the composite industry, is given less importance for tribological applications. In the current research, an in-depth study is made to understand the influence of normal force and speed, affecting the tribological characteristics. Various forms of lignocellulosic fibers exist, out of which coconut fibers are advantageous due to its naturally woven state. Tribological characterization was performed using a ball on disc configuration. Online measurements of friction force elucidate that the friction characteristics of naturally woven coconut sheath reinforced polymer (CSRP) composite stabilize at increased speed. Moreover, the orientation of the fiber strongly influences mode of wear.
